You guys give great advice often worth more then the cost, so any advice could save me lots of time. I have been assisting a wedding photogrpaher for the last two month s. I am not getting paid yet, but I am getting valuable experience especially since I did not go to school for this. Up untill recently he was letting me shoot next to him using his equipment, (eos 300d). I just bought my own 20d kit from best buy for a steal and oh my god I love it! So the photographer is not the most tech savvy. He is not stupid by any means he just has not put his emphasis into the photoshop end of the workflow. He does great photo edits, atleasts he has taken some of my "learning" shots and made them usable, to include in packages. I have an opportunity now to get some money out of assisting with him. He would like me to start putting my emphasis on the post production end of things. I know I can do it, and I even think I could probably do the edits better then he does. I am realy excited about this opportunity and I want to get into it as soon as reasonably possible. I own elements 2.0 and I have the gimp installed. I am not going to purchase any other software, its out of the question at this point. Which program is easier to use or more valuable for photoedits and eventually artisiticly designed album construction. I know gimp is very powerful, but I want ease of use. I have not gotten in deep with either program but I dont want to switch gears halfway through a project, (or is that easy to do?). I've heard that photoshop alows for nondestructive edits of raw images. Is there any other types of issues that I should know about that would make me choose one over the other for my main workflow. Any advice would be great.
